HKALL(港書網), Hong Kong Academic Library Link(香港高校圖書聯網), is a project in accelerated resource sharing jointly undertaken by the academic libraries of eight local tertiary institutions, listed in the left sidebar.
Implemented in INN-Reach software from Innovative Interfaces and running on a Sun server housed at the University of Hong Kong Libraries, HKALL is a union catalogue allowing the students and staff of the eight partner institutions to search a mega collection of over 8 million titles of monographs (11M+ volumes) held in the eight participating libraries. They can make direct requests on these materials, and have the materials delivered to the libraries of their respective institutions for further checkout. In cases where printed materials cannot be sent via HKALL, current students and staff may be able to go to that library personally to use the item in question. Please enquire at your library's circulation desk for further details. The map links on the left hand side of this page are provided to help you get to these libraries. HKALL is unique with its large number of Chinese items, and its high number of transactions; in 2010 it had the highest circulation rate of any INN-Reach system in the world.
